Since the introduction of the R1200 RT, one single request for improvement from our customers that stands out above the rest is that of an affordable improvement to the mirrors. Though the original mirrors are well placed to provide wind protection, they are not in the optimal spot for a clear view of what's behind.
These adapters replace the upper half of the lever perch and are threaded to accept a M10 x 1.5 mirror stud. The 10mm size is fairly common and you can mount a variety of mirrors, including the BMW mirrors for the R1200 GS for example. The mirrors that we recommend for this application however are our Vario Flash extending mirrors. The Flash mirrors have a unique angular shape that compliments the lines of the RT. Additionally, they are length and angle adjustable, so that you can achieve the optimal position and avoid interference with the windshield.
Important Note: These 6 mm adapters will only fit R1200 RT's 08/2012 production date (2012 Model Year) through 2013.
Important ordering information:
If you want to install mirrors on both sides of your 2010 or later R1200 RT, you will need the following:
• Two of these mirror adapters
• Two mirrors, three suitable versions can be found under the Related Products.
(For one mirror, please order one adapter and one mirror)
